Babylon
David Gray Lyrics


Friday night, I'm going nowhere
All the lights are changing green to red
Turning over TV stations
Situations running through my head
Looking back through time
You know it's clear that I've been blind, I've been a fool
To open up my heart to all that jealousy
That bitterness, that ridicule

Saturday, I'm running wild
And all the lights are changing red to green
Moving through the crowds I'm pushing
Chemicals are rushing in my bloodstream

Only wish that you were here
You know I'm seeing it so clear
I've been afraid
To show you how I really feel
Admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made

And if you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Babylon, Babylon, Babylon

Sunday, all the lights of London shining
Sky is fading red to blue
Kicking through the autumn leaves
And wondering where it is you might be going to

Turning back for home
You know I'm feeling so alone
I can't believe
Climbing on the stair
I turn around to see you smiling there
In front of me

And if you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Babylon, Babylon, Babylon, Babylon, Babylon
Ah

I remember in my late teens sitting in a stolen car with two of my childhood friends, in a car park taking heroin… this song came on the radio and we all paused in a moment of life evaluation… for those 2 minutes we shared this song and a magical moment. my two friends are no longer here… yet my life has ended up really good, great job, home, and a family that love me… I’m 40 years old on Sunday, I consider myself very lucky!

I think you are a bellend drug user

the vibration of his vocals on our subconscious is keeping us in a frequency that reinforces the illusion and where we're encouraged to indulge in babylon, the tower of babel, by babbling on talking in spells that forge our realities by programming and bypassing our conscious mind...

David your music has always gotten me though a though time. Just listening to your music uplifts my spirit. I started when I got divorced and now my second husband made me a widow your songs are straight up conforming. So thank you. Please make some more your voice is so original I love having it to. Thank you.

This was my favorite album in 2000-01. I'm not sure why this song has come back into my life, but it's amazing to see where I was 22 years ago, and where I am now. Yet the song still remains the same, haunting me in a new way.

Sweet freaking jesus, I've literally been looking for this song for about a decade or so. I heard it in a safeway grocery store and misinterpreted the lyrics and eventually figured I'd never find out. You have no idea how nice it is to find the title to the song that's been playing on my head for ten years.
